Your 2 Cents: Controversy Surrounding Proper Etiquette During The National Anthem Your 2 Cents: Controversy Surrounding Proper Etiquette During The National Anthem

I commented that Edmond's Blake Griffin was the only Los Angeles Clipper player I saw who put his right hand over his heart during the National Anthem Sunday. Most NBA players don't, but I pointed out last night that the U.S. Code said that is the correct way to honor the flag and anthem. Here's what you had to say.

Mary in Cushing first:

"Thank you for clarifying how to respect our National Anthem and Our Flag."

Marilyn wrote:

"Teaching the ignorant is an endless, thankless job.."

But Rick in Moore said:

"I love all these people here who think they're more patriotic if they place their hands over their heart during the anthem."

It's not a competition Rich.

Renita wrote:

"I love it! One of your best!"

Kristin in McLoud couldn't disagree more:

"Way to stir up the hate-filled rhetoric News 9...we have the right to believe anything we want.."

Brian from Edmond responded to that:

"The flag and the veterans you apparently choose to disrespect are the the VERY THINGS that give YOU the RIGHTS you just bragged about."

Lesa in Tuttle:

"..a little boy, probably 3 was playing on a cell phone while his mom sat beside him during the national anthem.. this is why we have disrespect."

Finally, Edward asked:

"Has anyone given our pro basketball team the heads up on this? I think there are usually only two who put their hands over their hearts."
